A New Twist in the 20 year old Babri Masjid verdict: Will the case step into the International Court ?

Mejbel Al Sharika has insisted to draw the Babri Masjid Case into the International Court. He is an eminent lawyer from Kuwait and a stalwart of human rights. He further demanded the reconstruction of the illicitly demolished mosque.

In 2019, the Supreme Court of India delivered the judgement on the Ayodhya Case; after almost 19 years of dispute. However, the decision did not make the Muslim majority Countries very happy.

The History of the Babri Masjid

To explain, Mughal Emperor Babur’s general Mir Baqi built Babri Masjid in Ayodhya in 1528. In fact, the mosque was constructed at a site believed by Hindus to be the birthplace of Lord Rama; a significant Hindu deity. Thus, it has been a matter of contestation between the Hindus and the Muslims for a prolonged period.

The construction of a Ram Temple over the disputed land has always been a part of the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP)’s political manifesto. In fact, the then BJP President L K Advani launched a Rath Yatra from Somnath in Gujarat to Ayodhya on 25th September 1990. His ultimatum was the construction of a Ram temple. Although the Police arrested him in Bihar. Tons of kar sevaks (people who provide services for free to a religious cause) toppled Babri Mosque; smashing it to the ground on December 1992.

Thereafter, the case moved to the Supreme Court in May 2011. Thus, after 8 years; on November 9, 2019, the Supreme Court Bench led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi granted the disputed land in Ayodhya to Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas for the construction of a temple. Whereas the Muslim camp was given five acres of land for the mosque.

Global Outlook

A part from being concerned of the Muslim community of India, this is also an issue of religious and human rights violations of global scale, I would therefore request you to conduct an urgent meeting of the authorised members of your board and grant us the responsibility to take the Babri Masjid case to International Criminal Court

Mejbel Al Sharika

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) was asked to give Sharika the permission to take the issue to International Criminal Court (ICC) . Earlier, The Majlis Bachao Tehreek (MBT), a political party in the Indian state of Telangana also urged the AIMPLB to approach the International Court of Justice(ICJ).

“Muslims of India are not alone, Babri Masjid like Masjid Al-Aqsa belongs to every Muslim on the planet. The Ummah won’t stay silent until justice is done and Babri Masjid is reconstructed at the site where it was illegally demolished. I stand for justice”

Mejbel Al Sharika

How does it vandalize India’s secular character ?

There is seemingly a rising intolerance towards Muslims in India and it is wounding Islamic emotions throughout the world. Of course, the ball Game being played by the current administration in order to attain Hindu supremacy will only damage the relations with Islamic countries. However, this can eventually lead to erroneous consequences for the Indian migrants residing in these nations. While also creating muddles in the foreign policy especially when noisy neighbours surround India.

The judgement of the Supreme Court was highly unsolicited by the Muslims. Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi’s pro-BJP tilt was clearly visible. Will the AIMPLB knock the doors of ICC or will it start the construction of Mosque on the land granted by the Supreme court? We will have to wait and watch.
